    “Heavy downpours may lead to localised flooding of roads and low-lying bridges. 

    “Localized damage to settlements and infrastructure over open areas due to strong winds.” 

    SAWS

    ‘TAKE CAUTION OR AVOID TRAVELING ON BRIDGES’

    The SAWS warned to take caution or avoid traveling on bridges and roads in low-lying areas as these may be susceptible to flooding, and there may be sinkholes. 

    “Avoid outdoor activities as wind and flooding may result in injuries and death. Avoid being in an open field, as there may be flying debris. If possible, stay indoors well clear of windows, shelter pets, and cover vehicles.”
